Colour of the Year : Simply White

COTM_Simply White


Simply White OC-117 is Benjamin Moore’s 2016 Color of the Year! Check out the inspiration spaces painted in this shade of white here.

“Layered whites, diffused light… AMBIENCE. Surrender to the complexity of white.”

“Striking contrasts, bold lines… DEFINITION. Angles and edges become sharply defined as white is cut with black.”

“White-washed walls, hand-hewn beams… TEXTURE.”

“Energizing color, crisp white borders… FOCUS. White frames and flatters.”

We are very exciting to celebrate the beauty of Simply White in 2016! This has been our #1 shade of white for over 10 years, thanks to it’s soft neutral undertones and flexibility, it can be paired with almost any color!

How are you going to use Simply White OC-117 in your home this year?

Fashion Interior : White on White


Fashion and home decor trends go hand-in-hand, whatever is popular on the runway will quickly become popular in home decor. The fall 2012 runways were packed with trends ranging from bold colour to metal hardware, and once again head-to-toe white. This ethereal trend has come and gone throughout many fashion eras and has popped up again for 2012.

All white spaces are tricky to master, a common mistake is creating a cold, sterile space. The key to creating a warm and inviting all-white space is layering textures and materials. Here we have featured some of the varying textured white merchandise available at Mountain Home Decor: Mongolian fur pillow, white metallic circle patterned pillow, a white-mix abstract painting, assorted textured white ceramic vases, leather and tweed modern chaise lounge, a white throw blanket, glass curved coffee table, a ‘Bertoia’ inspired metal chair with white leather cushion and a natural white stone accent piece.

Would you decorate an all-white space in your home?

Here are some of our favourite white’s from Benjamin Moore : Cloud White 2159-70, Decorators White CC-20, Chantilly Lace 2121-70.
